So I was blissfully going along the other day, catching up on some links I’d found on the Boston Ballet Facebook page when I landed on a local PBS program profiling the elder siblings Cirio and their side project, the Cirio Collective.
There I am, all happy to see one of my favorite dancers profiled when, towards the end of the segment they dump this little bombshell on me:
Jeffrey Cirio is LEAVING Boston Ballet for ABT!!!
I jumped up and started stamping around my office, much to the chagrin of my office-mate who had no idea why I was suddenly so distraught.
But I just…
This guy — the highlight of every BB show I attend — is turning his back on us, defecting to the dark side! Waaaahhhh!!!
I really have no idea what I’m going to do.
One of my fellow dancers suggested we arrange a road trip to NYC to watch ABT so I can still get my fix. While I don’t want to reward such traitorous behavior on JC’s part, I may have to do exactly that since I have no idea how else I shall survive the coming season without glimpsing him flying around on stage.
Tears and woe… 😦
